June 2: Home Opener VS Team Dragon

On June 2, 2018, our brand new house team, Team Terminal City, made their debut performance against Team Dragon and led TCRG to a 234-165 at-home win! Keep an eye out for Team Terminal City and many more house teams from leagues across the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island at this year’s Summer Slam!

Season 12 Is Here

Season 12 is officially underway! And we have some big news!

We have combined our amazing house team forces into one awesome Team Terminal City. They’ll be playing their first game together on June 2nd against Team Dragon at Royal City Curling Club and will be representing TCRG again for our fourth annual Summer Slam on June 23rd and 24th. Don’t miss out on these two exciting events – get your tickets online today!

Our All-Stars team has been training hard after a well-deserved off-season (remember how they went to Sweden for playoffs last September?!). And now, they’ve started the season off with some serious butt-kicking at the Big O Tournament in Eugene, Oregon. With a 125-261 loss to Sacramento, a nail-bitingly close game versus Tuscon (166-177!), and a solid 239-170 victory over Calgary, they did Vancouver proud!

And finally, if you’ve ever considered skating with TCRG, then here’s your chance! The Mix Tapes program is in its second season, and the results are showing. We’ve got fresh new faces learning the basics of skating, and several Mixies have graduated into Team Terminal City.

So, what are you waiting for? Watch, skate or play! Come join us!

Aug 5-6: Derby Night in Canada

What could be better than a bit more derby to cure the end-of-season blues?

How about a bunch more derby! Two action-packed days of high-level derby, featuring skaters of the All-Star Program, to be exact!

On August 5th and 6th, TCRG proudly brings you the second annual Derby Night in Canada. Over the course of two days, we will host some of the most competitive derby right here at home!

Come cheer for the TCRG All-Star Program’s B team and visiting regional travel teams as they go neck and neck in a round robin tournament. Saturday night will feature a special game of the TCRG All-Stars versus Rat City All-Stars, followed by an after-party at the upstairs bar.

Not only does it promise to be a weekend of high-level skating and gameplay, but it’s also your first peek at what the All-Star Program has been cooking up since its launch at the beginning of the season.

Can you believe it? We’re less than one week away from the first game of the season!

Season 11 is full of exciting new changes, and we can’t wait to show you what we have in store!

In travel team news, our B-Side regional travel team has joined forces with the TCRG All-Stars in the brand new All-Star Program. Both A and B teams are training together to share skills and strategy, and getting ripped together in a custom strength building program. Derby world, you don’t know what’s about to hit you!

On the home front, we have an exciting season schedule lined up! Not only do you get to see your favorite TCRG skaters this season, but we’re inviting local derby talent to join us on the track. Season 10 saw the retirement of many experienced players, so while we train up the rookies to fill their skates, we’re mixing things up a bit with the help of other local leagues. You’ll see exciting games against visiting teams, as well as a few new faces jumping in as pick-ups.

It all starts this Saturday, April 29th, at our double header Season Opener at Royal City Curling Club. The Bad Reputations will be facing off against Public Frenemy, followed by our very own Riot Girls taking on the infamous Team Dragon!

Don’t miss out as we kick off Season 11 with a bang. Get your tickets online or at the door, and join us for an action-packed night of roller derby!
